't. last night in north carolina republicans turned out in full force to vote for the state's ban on gay marriage. that ban was expected to pass but it passed with a whopping 61 percent of the vote. democrats were pressing president obama to do what in other president has done before. and that is backing gay marriage. now context. tonight, the president is at an event on the west coast with a lot of gay marriage undertones. there is another fundraiser tomorrow. with risky -- ricky martin tomorrow. and now the president was under a great deal of pressure. many political analysts, on his side, and the other, have said there is no way the president is really still evolving, the president is as many put it, too smart to still be stuck in that reality. and now ed, thethe analyst a ne presiden spoken. >>reporter: he spoke to abc. we reported at 1:00 o'clock, first, that i had a senior democratic advisor saying the president would make news and not rehash his old statement about evolving. he said on the interview that he thought gays and lesbians should be fairly and equally but always thought
about north carolina voting today on amendment one. that defines marriage between a man and a woman. the president hasn't taken a firm stance on marriage equality. but he has come out against amendment one. if the president does voice support of marriage equality, does he risk alienating voters in key battleground states like north carolina, florida, virginia? >> yes, he does. that's the political calculation here. i would agree with my friend jonathan capehart on the substance of it in terms of what the president should do. we all know where he stands. this idea floating around washington that the president is going to come out for supporting gay marriage after the election is just inane. people looking for principle leadership, if it's a part of your core, we expect you to stand firm in it, regardless of what the polls say or how a particular group in a battleground state may interpret it. the reality is right now, the country is looking for principled leadership as much as people want to jam up mitt romney on what happened in that little moment yesterday with the voter, the same

seeing even what's happening in north carolina right now is it smart politically for the president to let them turn this election into a referendum on gay marriage? >> no. that's a narrative he can't let get away from him like kerry did. that's what kerry -- he also got -- i don't want to say gay married because he didn't. >> stephanie: i know we're farther ahead on the issue. i remember chris and jim saying that. oh, boy, i wish they hadn't brought that up now. >>they got all of the marriage amendments on the ballot in 2004. that's one of the things that did kerry in. >> stephanie: i do think we've progressed on the issue but again, it can't be said enough that we have made more progress on gay rights than every other president combined. i just -- when i look at what's happening in north carolina, when i look at what happened out here rude, we didn't think in california prop eight was going to pass. i gotta say right now i'm hoping that doesn't happen tomorrow but right now the gay bashing a

's not popular in swing states and could turn people off, specifically in north carolina and virginia? >> that is the impression that he's given a lot of people. and i think that's the damaging aspect of this whole episode is that in having other members of the administration be further out front on this issue than the president is willing to be and portraying this as a process of evolution that seems to have no end point or in which there are no updates, a sort of static point in the evolution process, he really is promoting an image of himself as politically calculating and overly cautious. that, i think, is the problem with this whole episode for the white house and why they have sort of scrambled to put it to rest. >> ezra, has the administration's own track record on gay rights made it more difficult to support gay marriage right now? >> i think it's made it more difficult for the president to oppose gay marriage right now. they've been pretty forward on most gay rights issues. yes, we think gay people should have every single right that everybody else has and clearly what is it,
